Jan. 16th 2017 – The Promised Land

This week though πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
So during our weekly planning, we are very precise and particular. We
plan for every 15 minutes of every day. We know exactly what we will
be doing. We prayerfully and very carefully plan. We pray for guidance
and direction and we pray that our Heavenly Father will lead us in the
direction of where He needs us. So here’s where Pia comes in…

Monday night, we were eating dinner with the Morrison family in our
Ward. Brother Morrison was telling us about an experience they had
earlier that day. Pia is a friend of their’s who isn’t a member of the
church. She was over at their house for lunch that day. She was having
a super hard time, and she poured her heart out to them. Brother
Morrison offered her a priesthood blessing. She accepted. In the
blessing he assured her that God loves her and He’s aware of her.
Brother Morrison said it was an incredible experience for her. He told
us her name was Pia. And we were like, “What is her last name?!?!” And
it turns out that this same Pia is in our area book, and she was in
our plans for us to see her that very evening. Crazy stuff! We went
over to her house and asked her about her experience having a
blessing. She loved knowing and feeling of God’s love for her. We told
the story, and how it was no coincidence how we met her that night.
She was in tears. She was so grateful that we listened to the Lord.

So we met with Art again! First off, in the morning of Art’s lesson,
we were prompted to put our hymn books in our bags. HE’S SO COOL!! We
read Joseph Smith’s testimony in the beginning of the Book of Mormon
with him. He loooved it. He was like, “How could anyone make this
up?!” Lol. Love that guy. Art has been going through a lot. He kept
saying how he knows God sent us to him. He kept saying how he needs to
find peace and direction, and he knows he can find it, he knows he’s
on the right path. He told us so much that’s going on his life. It’s
so sad. We decided to pull out our hymn books. We opened up to hymn
#124 Be Still My Soul. And we sang it for him. He was so grateful. It
was exactly what he needed to hear, and it brought such a beautiful
spirit that touched his heart. It changed his life. It wasn’t us
singing, it was angels.

We met with Aredelia!! We taught her the Plan of Salvation. Love it.
And she loved it!!! It was a great lesson. She said, “the celestial
kingdom is definitely the goal!” Wahoo!!! I’m so grateful for the Plan
of Salvation. I am so grateful for the knowledge that we will live
after this life and that we can be with our families for eternity!

So many miracles are happening in Grants Pass. We are so blessed to be
serving here!! It’s so cool to be here! This pic is just a selfie of
us tracting, doing a zone blitz after district meeting! We found 3 new
investigators! πŸ‘πŸ» Sister Alldredge, Sister Fjerstad, Sister Roach,
and I!

Love you!
Love,
Sister Dobbins
